I was just about to send the same response. :-) Yes, that should do it; 
you're looking for the "Oldstyle figures" feature, and that's the 
OpenType tag for it.

If you have a copy of the fonts on a Windows machine, you can use the 
Font Properties Extension (or something like that, I forget the precise 
name) to see what features a given font supports. XeTeX doesn't yet 
have a way for you to query OT fonts like that (as it does for AAT 
fonts). Maybe in a future version....
